The Formation de Combat (FC) was a paramilitary group formed by the Rexist movement in Wallonia, Belgium, on 9 July 1940. By 1942 most of the members had joined the Légion Wallonie, Garde Wallone or the NSKK and the organization was becoming insignificant.

In the summer of 1942 plans were made to organize a Hilfsgendarmerie as a replacement of the FC but that was a failure.
